with specific goals and general education and our diverse learners that benefit as you can understand from teachers with a repertoire of strategies. in gathering this general data we have contracted with pearson's review 360 and a screening tool that makes it easier to input aggregate behavioral student trends. i want to emphasize for the community that this universal screening is not a test or evaluation of students or pupils, but rather it's a teacher survey to collect teacher's observations of people's behavior. all of the information that is collected has been directly observed by families doing their daily responsibilities to manage student behavior. the survey doesn't require teachers to do psychological testing or any mental health assessments as stated in the letter. please note above that the universal screening data would be used to determine if there are enhancements needed to support students in school or what supplemental or methods are necessary. i also want to call everyone's attention this is mendoza and we have joining our president and celebrating january as nationa

, breed, chiu, farrell, kim, mar and wiener. higher education truly is the key to success in this country and the ability of many students to attend an institution of of higher learning is based largely on their ability to secure financial assistance. i know from my own personal experience i'll not be here today sitting in this chair without the ability to have received financial assistance to go to college and to go to law school. unfortunately, the cost of the higher education continues to rise for private, public and for profit community colleges thought this country and students and families in san francisco are right now in the ross pros of making very important decisions about their future. so it is critical that we as a city increase the awareness about financial aid and how the process worgz and specifically the free application for federal student aid, the f a f s a application, which if completed will ensure that student have access to the many reresource available to them and it helps student but it helps us all because it ensures that they get the education that they need fo

amount of the public education enrichment fund that in the district materials that would be transmitted to the city, the mayor and the board of supervisors and the other city officials, that we would specify that -- we would make some sort of a statement that we would -- we expect full funding or appropriation from the city for 13-14 -- i actually haven't shared with this chris and kathy and part of that why is so because in the mayor's state of the city address yesterday he remarked about his intention to fully fund the public education enrichment fund and specified the amounts of funding that would be associated with the appropriation for 13-14 and i confirmed with the mayor's budget director one-on-one just to make sure we were crystal clear about the intention. that that was the right interpretation and she confirmed it was so and we could share that information with our board members and stakeholders which is why you all received the email that you did this morning from dr. crawford, so based on that commissioner wynns i see your point that it may still be good to memorialize that

, that education, job training, paying attention to housing, poverty, isolation, all of those elements lead to the uptick in violence. that's actually quite a strong lesson for all of us mayors to learn as we ask each other for help in solving this. and i want to thank all of you in this audience from adult probation, juvie probation, inter98 (inaudible) for helping me carve what we can do in this city. many of you know i've been a champion for jobs and i truly believe job creation and better economics is going to be a big answer. but it isn't the only answer because i quickly realized, i can't give a dead kid a job in this city. there's no answer for that. we've got to find better answers for people who are confronted with decisions they have to make to not take the violent road for that decision. and it starts early and many of you reminded me, start now, mayor, start investing in education. start investing in community based ways in which we can reduce the attitude that violence can resolve something. and then make sure we work with our health departments and our medical experts to
to be an assessment made. they are going to try to acquire education or knowledge about what happened there and whether it was gang related. currently if that happens, and we have gone through this past weekend as soon as there is an assessment made of the situation, whereby we believed that it was gang related. we will do the redeployment and each week we sent out a schedule and it goes out to the violence reduction team and our swat team and our honda unit and it puts our trouble hot spots on the map and it is not only for gang involved shootings, but for robberies or different crimes that are occurring during the weekend so we want to sat rate these different areas and so i break it down across the board. a lot of times these lieutenants are the captains of the certain districts they called and needed help on the robbery issues. so we are going to sat rate that area, and things of that effect. we are going to be sat rating some of our areas with gang problems. what we found on this past week and we seen it several times and there is a retaliation. we broke down and redeployed to th

like to say safety should be first and foremost along with quality education, quality and experienced staff. we can close the achievement gap and superintendent i like to work with you as i said before so please reach out to me. thank you. >> yes hi good afternoon. i am tory cane. i am a t10 security. i have been exonerated after going through a long process but i am sure you've heard all of the problems mlk and administrator stuff so i would like to move on. i want to move on with my life and these issues, and i would like to say they believe in the board of education. i believe in what it stands for and i also know that sometimes we get off on the wrong foot if things go wrong but we learn through those issues and i would like to just go forward from this point. things happened. okay. but as i'm standing here i think about security in the schools and we get such a bad rap because we're very low on the totem poll and called when we're needed and in essence we put on life on the line for students, our ourselves and the administration and staff. some years ago, long ago me and
on their feet or even work force development or educational opportunities to help a mother who is homeless, for example, to get on their feet, we need much more of that, and we cannot cut programs that will increase the roles of the homeless. i believe that the project homeless connect and some of the projects created by previous administrations are not enough. we need to look at transitional housing but also continuing the type of support to help people get back on their feet. the job training and other types of programs that the mayor's office of economic and workforce of all men are working on are really important to ensure that unemployed people and potentially homeless people can be trained in the new green economy and green jobs. there is also a lot of other types of work force development being done, but i think it has to be targeted at some of the lowest income, highest vulnerability populations in our city, and that would help prevent homelessness from growing. but i hope that as we look at homeless policy, we take a man approached that does not blame homeless people for their own
